they will probably be doing google a favour if they convince them to reign back a bit on promoting their own sites.
if google keep pushing it the way they are at the moment, then are going to end up losing users to other engines. bing's numbers are already creeping up.
google are trying to turn themselves into a portal, and every other portal that I know of couldn't keep its users (...apart from facebook, which kind of blows my theory)
